One of the things my boys and I love to do is eat chips and salsa. Add to that the fall football season, soccer season, or basketball season and we’ve got a great way to spend a Saturday or Sunday afternoon.  It just so happens that my wife loves salsa too. We’ve researched Texican restaurants our whole lives and never found the perfect salsa.  Thankfully for me, Gena concocted her own genius recipe that is great for me, and my boys.  It’s got a kick, but it’s not too spicy to enjoy.  I’m going to give you the secret to this game-day masterpiece. If your family likes salsa like mine, make sure you make a lot.

This game day salsa is a staple in our house. We use it on our cheese enchiladas, breakfast burritos, and alongside any Mexican food meal. This stuff goes quick!


  • 1 large can (about 28 oz) crushed fire roasted tomatoes
  • 2 medium jalapeños, or your favorite pepper
  • olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried garlic (can use fresh garlic)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 TBSP lime juice

Directions for roasting peppers:

  1. Turn oven on to 400°F.
  2. Rinse peppers in water and cut off the tops.
  3. Place peppers on a small baking sheet or oven safe dish.
  4. Drizzle a little olive oil on top of the peppers.
  5. Place peppers in the oven and check every 5-10 minutes, but will probably take closer to 20, depending on the size of your peppers.
  6. After skin has browned and has a few charred spots, they’re done.
  7. Remove them from the oven and set aside to cool.

Directions for making salsa:

  1. Place roasted tomatoes, roasted peppers, garlic, salt, onion powder, cumin, and lime juice in the blender or food processor.
  2. Depending on how you like it, you could blend it a lot or if you like it really chunky, just a little.  We usually blend it for about 15-20 seconds.
  3. Pour in a pot on the stove and bring to a boil, and then let cool.  The boiling helps the salsa to keep longer in the fridge without spoiling, but trust me, this will go so fast, you probably can skip this step.
  4. Serve up with your favorite chips or Mexican food and enjoy in front of the big game!

[…] Hubby actually had no idea that this was canned tuna fish when he ate it.  It doesn't have an overly fishy taste and it's not mushy like a lot of canned tuna fish.  It was a hit, especially in these Albacore Tuna Quesadillas.  They would be perfect for any quick meal, celebration, or Cinco de Mayo!  You can make them in a snap and then dip them in this delicious fire roasted salsa.
